Trey Lyles Agrees To Two-Year Deal With Spurs

Marcus Morris

NY believes that "obtaining Marcus Morris as a free agent" is a likely scenario, according to a report from SNY.

When you can renege on an agreement with the San Antonio Spurs to become the fourth power forward this month to sign with the New York Knicks, you gotta do it, right?

Morris averaged 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds for the C's last season.

Morris, who played for the Boston Celtics last season, had previously agreed to terms on a two-year, $20 million deal with the Spurs after the start of free agency. The swingman whose uncertain health led to a series of last-minute deal changes over the course of the past week.

"I have respect for them", Morris told The Athletic.

Rather than forcing Morris into a situation that he longer wanted any part of, the Spurs pivoted to sign Lyles, who had his qualifying offer revoked by the Nuggets just one day before Morris began to express a desire to reopen his agreement.

The sports media world was all over the New York Knicks front office for failing to sign marquee free agents Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. "This is no knock on the Spurs". But following a reworking of Reggie Bullock's new Knicks contract, Morris reportedly has chose to spurn the Spurs and take a one-year, $15 million contract in NY. What we can say for sure is the Rockets will be an isolation heavy team, but with so much skill at that style they will be hard to stop.

All three numbers are higher than Morris' career averages of 11.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 36% 3-point shooting, and even Morris' free throw percentage with the Celtics (84.4%) was significantly better than his career mark of 74.7%.

However, most players improve on that end of the floor in Gregg Popovich's system and Lyles is likely to do the same after arriving in San Antonio.
